Minors

A minor provides a coherent program of study in an area outside of the undergraduate degree that the student is pursuing. The Mechanical Engineering Department offers a minor in Mechatronics for undergraduates outside of the Mechanical Engineering program. Mechatronics utilizes the principles of mechanical, electric, control, and computer engineering to create fully-featured systems and robots. Only courses completed with a grade of "C" or better are accepted towards the minor.
